For number six on our list of "10 Ways to Grow More Good," we're diving into ourselves and focusing on us because this entry is about meditation. And before you ask, "how does me meditating help grow more good around the world?" we would like to remind you that all positive change starts from within ourselves!
"Acting with patience brings more understanding, more empathy, and less frustration."
By meditating and finding a few moments to focus only on yourself, you generate quite a good bit of positivity in the world. Most importantly, that means stepping back and perceiving the world from a different perspective than the one you currently have. It is a less immediate perspective, less urgent, and more patient. And that newfound patience is what you bring to the world for the rest of your day.
When you can meet the world with an extended amount of patience, you can interact with the world in a much more...well, patient way.
"Most importantly, that means stepping back and perceiving the world from a different perspective."
Acting with patience brings more understanding, more empathy, and less frustration to people and things you encounter throughout your day. Maybe it's someone rude at the grocery store; perhaps it's a partner that's been snippy all day. When you experience the world from a patient perspective, you can bring a clear understanding of the situation.
Maybe that person at the grocery is trying to get medicine home for a sick child; maybe your partner is stressed about a new work project. With the patience that comes from meditating, we can create chain reactions of positive energy that ripple throughout the interactions of our lives.
Looking for a way to "grow more good" around the world? Meditate.
